Amino acids are one of the key nutrients in our body. They have the property of joining together to form protein chains. Proteins are a key structural component of both cell membranes and the mechanism of muscle movement, as well as performing important biochemical functions as enzymes, hormones or antibodies, while regulating fluid volume and acid-base balance and being a secondary source of energy. for the body. These proteins are constantly renewed by the continuous breakdown and elimination of their amino acids on the one hand (turnover) but also by their respective intake and synthesis, on the other hand.
There are 20 different amino acids involved in protein synthesis, each with different properties. Of these, some amino acids, 9 in number, such as valine, methionine and tryptophan, are called essential amino acids, since the human body can not synthesize them and must absorb them as they are from food or other sources. The rest, such as alanine, glutamine and tyrosine, can be synthesized by our body under normal conditions (non-essential amino acids), while some of them, such as arginine, can under special conditions, such as in the developmental stage of infancy. age or in the presence of toxins not produced in sufficient quantities (semi-essential amino acids).
